Phish Played Over 200 Songs On Their 20-Show Summer Tour

first_imgLast night, Phish wrapped up a fun summer tour that saw the band play a total of 20 shows in 13 cities. While the band still has more performances on the docket, including two nights at LOCKN’ Festival and three nights at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park over Labor Day weekend, the bulk of the band’s scheduled travels are now complete. Naturally, while we wait for rumored fall tours and new albums to be announced, we wanted to reflect on the tour as a whole.In total, the band performed 205 songs over 20 shows, including a full eighty-four songs that were only played once all summer. In contrast, last year Phish played only 171 songs from the start of their summer tour through Magnaball, which was a total of 22 shows. In 2014, their 25-show tour brought 156 songs. Sufficed to say, Phish dug deep into their catalog and brought out a lot of classics, including jams like “The Sloth,” “The Lizards,” “Tela,” “McGrupp and the Watchful Hosemasters.” They also brought out tunes like “Let Me Lie,” “Round Room,” and “Demand,” as well as the full Fuego album (including bust outs of “Sing Monica” and “Wombat”) for the tour.The band also found some new covers for their 2016 rotation, including the biggest bust out, “Dear Prudence,” as well as “Cry Baby Cry” from The White Album. They also played another Beatles song, “I Am The Walrus.” “I Found A Reason” from Velvet Underground’s Loaded album made its first appearance since 1998, but the biggest surprise for covers was the debut of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.” The a cappella arrangement that has been performed throughout this summer has been a perfectly Phish-y tribute to the late great Thin White Duke.As far as debuts go, the band brought out a total of eight new original compositions. Here they are, in order of their debut: “Miss You,” “Breath and Burning,” “Things People Do,” “Waking Up Dead,” “Friends,” “Tide Turns,” “Let’s Go” and “Ass Handed.” The jury is still out as to whether “Ass Handed Reprise” from last night’s closer counts as its own song. Regardless, with Trey Anastasio recently telling fans that their album was finished, it should only be a matter of time before we have new information about this upcoming release. Lest we not forget that a whole host of new Phish songs, including “Blaze On,” “No Men In No Man’s Land,” “Shade,” “Mercury,” “How Many People Are You,” “Can’t Always Listen,” “Steam” and more, have yet to find homes in the studio. And there’s still a “15-minute piece with classical percussion” that we have yet to hear, if we’re to believe Hamilton percussionist Andrés Forero. Read more about that here.Interestingly, a few songs were left off the table in 2016, including fan-favorites like “Foam,” “Dirt,” “Esther,” “Colonel Forbin’s Ascent > Fly Famous Mockingbird,” and more. While “Fluffhead” did make its triumphant return this year, the absence of “Roses Are Free” suggests that something may be in store for LOCKN’, with Ween and Phish both performing. Fingers crossed.Of course, with over 200 songs played, the one notable absence from the tour was the long jam. The band’s setlists seemed more focused on going from song to song, as opposed to stretching any particular number out. The band relied heavily on instrument swapping this summer though, bringing out the Marimba Lumina on a near-nightly basis. Having witnessed the “Drive-In Jam” at Magnaball and the New Years’ “No Men In No Man’s Land” at MSG, it’s safe to say that the band isn’t quite tapped out from their exploratory jamming, but its absence from the summer run was surprising. With a handful of exceptions, like the SPAC “Moma” and “Chalk Dust,” the Hartford “Disease” or the BGCA “Sally,” there weren’t any individual jam moments that truly stood out along this tour.That all being said, some of these sets really gel collectively, especially the first set of the final Bill Graham show or the tease-filled second set at The Gorge opener. When we consider how many years Phish was absent from our lives in the earlier part of the 2000’s, the fact that they’re still trying new things – sharing new music, busting out old songs, etc. – is a testament to the band’s incredible legacy. Long live Phish.All stats here appear courtesy of IHOZ/Zzyzx.

Premier League footballers have not lost that gloving feeling

first_img Two of the Premier League’s most charismatic managers did not disappoint as they chose to deviate from normal touchline gear. Slaven Bilic took his seat on the West Ham bench at Newcastle with a beanie hat pulled tight over his head, while Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp kept his neck warm with a club snood against Manchester United on Sunday. Perhaps the biggest surprise of the weekend came at Stoke on Sunday evening. The Potters – once well known for their old-fashioned approach to the game – showed just how far they have come since the Tony Pulis days by sending out four players with gloves on, whereas Pulis’ influence saw West Brom brave the cold weather as one of four clubs without a glove in sight. In total, there were 29 sets of gloves on display over the weekend, interestingly with just three English players (Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Aaron Lennon and Wilfried Zaha) among them. Here are the results, starting with those most affected: 1. Manchester City (at home to Crystal Palace), five pairs of gloves, temperature 1C 2. Stoke (at home to Arsenal), four pairs of gloves, temperature 1C 3. Everton (away at Chelsea), four pairs of gloves, temperature 5C 4. West Ham (away at Newcastle), three pairs of gloves and a beanie, temperature 2C 5. Arsenal (away at Stoke), two pairs of gloves, temperature 1C 6. Manchester United (away at Liverpool), two pairs of gloves, temperature 2C 7. Aston Villa (at home to Leicester), two pairs of gloves, temperature 3C 8. Crystal Palace (away at Manchester City), one pair of gloves, temperature 1C 9. Leicester (away at Aston Villa), one pair of gloves, temperature 3C 10= Southampton (at home to West Brom), one pair of gloves, temperature 4C 10= Norwich (away at Bournemouth), one pair of gloves, temperature 4C 12= Chelsea (at home to Everton), one pair of gloves, temperature 5C 12= Tottenham (at home to Sunderland), one pair of gloves, temperature 5C 12= Sunderland (away at Tottenham), one pair of gloves, temperature 5C 15= Liverpool (at home to Manchester United), no gloves, temperature 2C 15= Newcastle (at home to West Ham), no gloves, temperature 2C 17= Bournemouth (at home to Norwich), no gloves, temperature 4C 17= West Brom (away at Southampton), no gloves, temperature 4C Footballers have been known to accessorise in the cold, with the snood an example of extreme measures taken before they were banned in 2011, and reporters at Premier League grounds have totted up the weird and wonderful ways the players kept warm this weekend. Things got under way between Tottenham and Sunderland at White Hart Lane on Saturday lunchtime with temperatures hovering around 5C and a low sun causing problems for Hugo Lloris in the Spurs goal, but things got gradually worse up and down the country as the day went on. With temperatures set to drop further in coming days, MeteoGroup (a team of meteorologists) has suggested this is just the start of a sustained cold spell. A spokesperson said on Saturday: “It’s the middle of winter so these sorts of cold spells are not unusual, but we’ve not had a particularly cold winter so far, so expect it (this cold snap) to stay for a while. “Temperatures are expected to reach freezing tonight and the coldest parts and most affected will be in the north-east of England.” The spokesperson added: “It is milder this weekend than in recent days, but expect that to change as the sleet and snow moves down from Scotland and Cumbria towards central England.” Erik Lamela and Patrick van Aanholt were the only men to keep their gloves on during Saturday’s early kick-off, opting for the bizarre combination of short sleeves and gloves – something which was repeated throughout the day. Chelsea striker Diego Costa was the only home player to start the game at Stamford Bridge with his woollies on but quickly took them off, while England manager Roy Hodgson styled it out in a scarf as he took up a watching brief in the stands and Roman Abramovich sported a big Champions League puffer jacket as his club hosted Everton. The bitter cold of Manchester may have spread to Wayne Hennessey’s fingertips as the Crystal Palace goalkeeper let a Fabian Delph shot beneath his body as temperatures reached freezing point. With snow beginning to fall at the Etihad Stadium, there were six outfield players in total keeping their digits warm – the highest aggregate on Saturday. The ‘hairdryer treatment’ may have been well received among the Palace players after they lost 4-0. With temperatures plummeting across the country in recent days, football fans and players alike have been forced to take extreme measures to avoid the cold, and Press Association Sport has carried out its own winter warmers survey.

2 men convicted in $1.3 million OC jewelry heist

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2But Zidbeck said “there was never information to lead us to believe they knew” the gem was at the store. Edwards and Watkins entered the store first, around opening time, and got the owners to open a safe before tying them up, Zidbeck said. Kirkwood allegedly came in later, the prosecutor said. One of the owners was “able to shimmy over and trigger a silent alarm,” and police had the store surrounded before the robbery was completed, Zidbeck said. The men stuffed the loose gems from the safe and the rings, necklaces and watches from the cases into two bags that were eventually recovered, Zidbeck said. Edwards and Kirkwood, who was allegedly holding one of the bags, were arrested as soon as they ran out a back door, Zidbeck said. SANTA ANA – Two men were convicted Tuesday of stealing $1.3 million worth of gems and jewelry from a Corona del Mar store, which had removed a 13.4-carat diamond from display four days before the heist. Dominic Edwards, 34, and Kenney Dwayne Watkins, 28, both of Los Angeles, were convicted of multiple counts stemming from the Oct. 27, 2004, robbery at Jewels by Joseph in the Corona del Mar Plaza shopping center. Trial is still pending for a third man, Herbert Nelson Kirkwood, 33, who is due in court for a pretrial hearing on June 16, said Deputy District Attorney Scott Zidbeck. Police speculated the men had been attracted to the store by news reports that the American Star, a diamond valued at $2.3 million and described as the “world’s largest, most perfectly cut diamond,” was displayed there. Watkins ran into an adjacent gelato store, pulled a gun and demanded the keys to a car from a store employee, but those inside the store ran outside, according to police reports. The store was surrounded by SWAT officers and Watkins later surrendered after injuring his leg while trying to escape via the attic to other businesses, police said. The other bag of jewelry was found in the gelato store, and some jewels were recovered from one of the defendant’s pockets, authorities said. “The victims said the retail loss was $1.3 million,” Zidbeck said. Some small diamonds may have spilled out from the bags, but “the vast, vast majority was recovered,” he said. Both Edwards and Watkins, who is believed to be a member of a Los Angeles street gang, face sentencing on July 28, after Orange County Superior Court Judge Patrick Donahue holds a separate hearing on whether prior convictions alleged by prosecutors are true, Zidbeck said. Depending on the judge’s findings, the two could face sentences ranging to 30 years or so for Watkins and 17 or 18 years for Edwards, Zidbeck said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
